you know of all economic background but you when you're talking about sea level rise we can see what having an impact march can do it can be studied at aaron's head it can be an encouragement it is a place to be. >> (calling names). >> good afternoon council. i'm dominique. i'm speaking on behalf of san francisco city college. i was part of the place of residence when it was first offered. it was a great class you know
what the students wool really came there and fixed that place of residence up and put in a lot of energy. there's a lot of hands on you can get from any textbook. it's also part of a sift program that i was lucky enough to get the sustainability certify. i landed a yoob and now i'm looking implementing the sustainability program. it's supporting the eco center and the community >> (calling names). >> good afternoon. james bryant western union director. i know i'll start my position off as you know, i can
imagination what david felt after gaga litigate came up but guess what we're the folks. those are hyphenated the nut i understand has a couple of million dollars in the bank they're able to pay their ceo who works part time $300,000 a year and you know what we can't do that but we can make sure that herself responses head is part of our community. let me start off will i by saying i had a meeting with peggy and the whole group because you, you know, my job is to facilitate and try to bring everybody 80 together. i said let's sit down and put a
team together because you may have all the technologies in the future but the major failure is that they didn't connect with the community they didn't, you know, easy into developing a relationship with folks. and i'll tell you why in 2006 pz&e started dismantling their power plant i was part of that and the folks who lived in the bayview hunter point ear never saw the herself responses facility. there was no violation for them to side they had to cut through a fence or cut around the security to become a part of the
scene at herself responses head. it was just recently that the poster came and did a fabulous job of remaking herself reopens head. i want to express the importance of making sure that you understand that if this - if by the hand this park over to thisable corporation that's the final barrier because there is no richz that any of the folks here have be able to put together not leverage not the bay institute. they keep saying san francisco city college i spent more 7, 8, 9 working with the city college more years and in fact, i was
part of the relevant committee to erect the new fabricate i specifically asked him what have you authorize conditional to use in this process and specifically he has not. and neither has the board is it's a good trick to come in here and say you know what we're doing f that but ledge built that building to serve the bayview hunter community and i hope as i send out my thoughts of leo when he started with local 10 when we said to me you know what it's a humility and i'm talking about humility how do we do something that's right.

program run by the wife horrify wildlife. we'll continue to provide this to neighborhoods that have been denied access to it. (calling names). so arcadia then margaret >> good afternoon, commissioners i'm martha and i'm the faculty in the graduate department at the john fy censured institute we're in

we've taken a great interest in the park from do i day one we've tribltd hundreds of hours in the landscaping and dine work. we've spent sent volunteers into the landscaping program and donated many hundreds of plant for the landscaping including the garden collection of rare specifications. it's my distinct pleasure to work s with peggy and crew that have demonstrated hard science is run the wastewater management system in the eco center. i was recently kekd contacted by bay natives to a give them insight to let them, you know,
about how to do the maintenance. i was impressed they reached out to me and it's clear this is the candidate that you should choose for this lease and i urge according to give them their favorable consideration >> (calling names). >> good morning, commissioners islam tracy. i am here representing myself. a combrup here in san francisco have been living in hunters point. i was working for literacy for viral justice for 3 years my i did a background of education and did ugh i youth he development. i was running that building by myself. it is a tough job.
i know in order to maximize it's full benefit the operation and the programming needs to be integrated and while the parentheses is not part of the proposal to live up to the full vision of being a classroom having a tenant that has the technical capacity to manage operations as well as do the programming is really crucial i'm here to support the bay institute and city college in the proposal. as we know with the history of the viral movement it's notes alters been inclusive. it's utmost importance the continually of san francisco that as an institution in our
city that bends folks and people of color especially in southeast san francisco that they have fro reign and hired folks in the community liquor carol line and charles with peggy leading the way. they've created an inclusive community at the eco center. it's hard to still stay connected who not been an employee but i'm draunl back to the eco center and wanted to support it because of the work that conditional has exempted. to you definitely second the comments earlier about the vision and commitment and follow through and am in support of their proposal >> (calling names).
>> good afternoon. islam's katherine i support the proposal for from the bay institution pr conditional serves 85 thousand students and in 340i department we have 5 thousand students. we run a pathway program at the south southeast campus your students work in early which would addition education and youth training as credential teachers. i have first-hand knowledge of the environmental deficits in classrooms and commissioner fierro centers in the areas of science. many of our classrooms have
minimal science activity areas and minimal science quarter and elementary schools have asphalt parking their yards where which were you can't can play and it's black top incriminate instead of green spaces. if we want to encourage kids we have to start with their teachers the straefrnz to have education and training in the ways of incorporating nature environment and know the basic principle of science and environmental education. our department is also very exempted to recruiting teachers they'll be working in the southeast sector their filled with schools and commissioner fierro homes. many of those teachers have had
one course in science and that's not enough to answer the questions children bring forth about the nature world. i'm glad that i can support in endeavor. i'm looking forward to insuring that our southeast classroom teachers and students can participate. it's hard for them to get on field trips from the southeast sector of the city many are on pun transportation so we could use that on a regular basis and i'm looking forward to a closer connection with our science department. so i support this >> (calling names). >> i'm mr. martin.
i'm doing all right. i want you all to know this is how we feel i'm supporting this randolph institute but this is how it also go. we also last in everything. we're fighting elders. but the whole point about the situation i'm glad conditional has all this go help and all that good help they can come and help us because they've got smoe so many people doing this and that but now i want them to come up on the hill and a offer us some help. we only right down the street we have a lot of killing and stuff going on up pr there. you need help with the family and i've gotd got to offer the
jobs to families would about us. we need jobs up there in order for our family to become stronger. they will help those kids out from 18 to 25 and a something like that that gets them off the street. and all this stuff is essential. everybody needs to play an important part, you know, we fighting because we need help not only for our community but for our people who live up there. this is a great big jump a nice start. we've got development going on up there and we've been rending run over but that's the most important thing we can't feel infer to nobody.
we have a right to be here and that we get this proposal because we lived up here in the community all our lives, you know, >> and thank you very much. i want to mention the speaker cards are dealt with in the order their received there's no stacking of the deck. >> i've lived in hufrnts want but i wanted to ask all the people in so for the of the bay institute how many of you have lived in hunter point that is how many of you have been to hunter point not herself responses head but where i will?
>> yeah. . you don't think our community needs this more than you do? rhetorical. anyway, i think that apr he does tremendous work and they need this program. i won't say desperately but a big help. we need this program and that space where they can learn and be trained. so it's my hope that you will vote for apr i to get that property thank you > >> (calling names). >> dwayne jones is no longer
here? (calling names.) >> thank the audience and commissioners for bearing with us. i'm the current department chair at conditional. i'm passionate. you've seen a lot of this with our students so i won't reharsh. i'm up here to say i think this proposal that the bay has pit forward provides sin just of what can happen there. i see the sky as the limit. unfortunately, it's us vs. them here. i want to say this proposal has the capacity to do what everybody wants to do and that's to benefit the community. many of the students you saw
here are from there and a lot of people had to leave so the show of hands is not proportional. we're currently in the stamdz of former listing our memoranda. the rfp was a short timeline and things at the city college move slowly so we state our intent to move this further long and we have our grants and development office very much in support of what we're trying to do and we'll have full college support eventually. katie was running the program she's very enthusiastic about this opportunity. in addition to that i think there's a lot of opportunity to
have dual enrollment capacity where students get to take conditional classes. i think this is awning an amazing fuentes opportunity for both institutions to do the educational work and he really do help the community and be excellent sturdz. thank you for your time >> (calling names). >> hi, i'm mary gunman robert son. i'm not a lesson many i'm cherokee by the way, we started the project because the original people of san francisco we
